So far, I have tried everything under the sun and I am coming up short. I really need some help here.  We just upgraded from Server 2003 to Server 2008 Active Directory servers and now I'm getting security Warnings all over the place and software deployments won't run.

this is what I have done:

Created a Group Policy. Under Computer (and User) Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Internet Control Panel\Security Page I set these:
Intranet Sites: Include all network paths (UNCs): Enabled
Intranet Zone Template: Low
Site to zone Assignment List: file:// (our domain), flie://server1:1, etc (1 equals Intranet Zone)
turn on automatic detection of the intranet: disabled
Under the /Intranet Zone section I modified: Launching programs and unsafe files: Enable with "enable" below that.

These settings are supposed to work but I still get prompted no matter what!

One scenario is I want to open a file through a DFS share like: \\\deploy\filename.msi  But that won't run I get the warning.

I don't know what else to do, I have been through this a thousand times.
